KUALA LUMPUR, 24 December 2021 – In the spirit of Christmas, 7-Eleven Malaysia, the largest 24-hour standalone convenience store operator, partnered with NGOhub to bring gifts to children from homes in Klang Valley.
Gifts such as candies, chocolates, and toys were distributed to children of the six homes – Persatuan Kebajikan Anak Yatim Mary, Good Samaritan Home, Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Istimewa Cerdik Taman Chi Liung, Persatuan Rumah Sayangan, Pusat Jagaan Warga Tua & Kanak-Kanak Wilayah Persekutuan and Home For The Angels – to bring joy to the children during this challenging period. On top of that, the 7-Eleven team gifted the homes projectors to support the children’s learning via online classes.
Expressing his gratitude, Jude Jasvin Joseph, Founder of Pusat Jagaan Kanak-Kanak Istimewa Cerdik, said, “Due to this pandemic our donation has decreased by 90% causing shortage on our rental for five months. We are unable to accept more people and all of my personal savings have gone out for the upkeep and maintenance of this center. 7- Eleven and NGOhub’s commitment in helping our handicapped, disabled, and special needs children and adults from low-income groups and rural areas is highly appreciated especially during this pandemic. The kids really felt excited with the goodies bags and the Christmas tree given!”
7-Eleven Malaysia’s General Manager of Marketing, Chin Hor Wai, said: “In the spirit of Christmas, we collaborated with NGOhub to cheer up the underprivileged children during these trying times. We wanted to spread festive joy and share the excitement of Christmas together, we believe the children and even the caretakers, enjoyed the little celebration and had a jolly great time!”
